13 Rating Based on Multiple RUMs with Pipeline Manager

This chapter shows how to use Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) Pipeline Manager to set up products to rate batch events based on multiple ratable usage metrics (RUMs).

Before you read this chapter, you should be familiar with rating and price lists. See "About Creating a Price List".

About Rating Based on Multiple RUMs with Pipeline Manager

To rate a real-time event by using multiple RUMs, you map the event to the RUMs in the product's usage map. However, to rate an event using multiple RUMs with Pipeline Manager, you set up multiple Price Model steps. In other words, you configure pipeline rating within the individual price models.

For each RUM, the data is set in the Event Data Record (EDR) before it is sent to the batch pipeline. Pipeline Manager then uses this data to do the rating based on each individual RUM. Each RUM is fully rated before rating the next RUM.

For more information about applying multiple RUMs to rate a batch event, see "Applying Multiple RUMs to Rate a Batch Event".

Applying Multiple RUMs to Rate a Batch Event

To rate a batch event by using multiple RUMs, you set up multiple Price Model steps.

To use multiple RUMs to rate a batch event, do the following:

  1. Define the RUMs available for rating. See "About Ratable Usage Metrics".

  2. Set up price model steps. The following example shows a multi-RUM rate plan model created for a standard GPRS delayed event:

    • Duration RUM: 0.02 EUR/min

    • Volume Sending RUM: 2 EUR/MB

    • Volume Receiving RUM: 2 EUR/MB

    • In this case, you set up the following price model steps:

      Configure the pricing for the Duration RUM as follows:

      Beat: 60

      Charge: 0.02

      Charge Base: 60

      Configure the pricing for the Volume Receiving RUM as follows:

      Beat: 2048

      Charge: 2.00

      Charge Base: 1048576

      Configure the pricing for the Volume Sending RUM as follows:

      Beat: 2048

      Charge: 2.00

      Charge Base: 1048576
